Child Friendly Hairdressers in London

by Sally Foster (follow)
Four hairdressers for your little ones to get the chop

Getting your child a haircut can be a very stressful event. There could be tears, lots of squirming or in my case, flat out running away. Because of this, I tend to pack everything apart from the kitchen sink when it is time to visit the local hairdresser at the hopes of distracting him.

So wouldn't it be great to be able to have a stress free trip to the hairdresser for once? Or maybe even have someone come to you? How amazing would it be for your littles ones to actually enjoy having a haircut or have it turn out with half a head looking neat and the other half untouched.

Here are some child friendly hairdressers in London:

1. Sharkeys Cuts for Kids

At Sharkey's Cuts for Kids, children are not expected to sit in just any boring old chair. They can sit in a Dodge Police Cruiser, Barbie Jeep, Lightning McQueen Race Car, Buzz Light Year Vehicle, Hummer, #8 Dale Earnhardt NASCAR Race Car, and/or Mini Cooper. All the while watching their favourite cartoons or Netflix. The power of distraction has never been more effective. For the older kids there is even a Playstation 3 or 4 or X-box 360. Is it your child's first haircut? They will give you a certificate celebrating this momentous occasion. How cute is that!

2. Trotters

Trotters is famous for its hairdressing service and a real institution having first opened its doors in 1990. Children are seated in front of a beautiful aquarium full of tropical fish that will mesmerise them during their haircut. All hairdressers are highly qualified and experienced in cutting children's hair and can deal with anything your kids throw at them. After every haircut every child will be offered a special Dunwoody chocolate coin and a sticker. Is it your child's first haircut? They will give you a certificate of bravery with a lock of their hair attached.

Locations: There are six locations at Guildford, Kensington, Kings Road, Northcote Road, Turnham Green and Westfield. Find your preferred location here.

3. Sally's Children's Hairdresser

Sally's Children's Hairdresser has been operating since 1985 and specialises in cutting children's hair. As one of the first children's hairdressers to open in London, Sally will make your children feel comfortable and happy. There are toys to play with and dvd's to watch. Sally is also well-practiced in working with children with special needs.

Location: 155B Northcote Road, Battersea, London SW11 6QB

4. Mobile Salon by Tanya

If the thought of taking your child to a hairdresser is a slightly terrifying thought, why not try a mobile hairdresser and have them come to the comfort of your own home? Mobile Salon by Tanya has been recommended by many Mums and provides a mobile hairdresser across all areas of London and specialises in children's haircuts.
